The inimitable Lauren Bacall passed away yesterday at 89. As fans reflect on her many iconic roles and on-screen moments, consider this clip from the 1973 telecast of the musical Applause, based on 1950’s All About Eve, where Bacall, playing another legendary actress—Margo Channing—decides to celebrate opening night of her new play at a gay bar in Greenwich Village. The number, "But Alive", celebrates the pure joy of being alive. Bacall won a Tony for her performance as Channing on Broadway.via towleroad
